We are sad to relay this belated announcement that Charlie Green passed away on September 15, 2012. He had been ill for some time, and passed away in mid-September. Many of you knew him as an NC delegate from Colorado, and *all* of us relied upon him as the main administrator for the voting page, which he became shortly after its inception in 2003.
One of the nicest aspect of my involvement with the Green Party was the opportunity to work with him helping to manage the voting page. He had a great, warm-hearted spirit. Humorous (hilarious might be a better word), savvy and insightful, and timely, he was a mostly unseen but critical component behind the operations of the national committee, administering voting page access and troubleshooting. He was the one we relied on for instructions and general knowledge about the voting page, and when I became secretary, he was the person who actually filled me in on how the system worked.
He held a number of party offices in the Green Party of Colorado, including most recently, delegate to the national committee. He also held elected office, serving as a member the District e, Fremont RE-3, Fremont County, CO, school board.
He was far more timely with his updates that we’ve been with ours.

My deepest condolences to Charlie’s family and friends, he will be missed. It was always a pleasure to work with Charlie.
Really really sad news. A really good man. I also loved working and talking with him. He was so reliable and had such a good sense of humor. He will be greatly missed.
Really sad news. I really loved Charlie. What a great guy and a joy to work with.
Thank you for your kindness in making this page and for your generous comments. Charlie loved the Green Party (and it wasn’t ONLY because he liked the name!) and he was certainly in your cheering section! I’m a very liberal Democrat.
Oh, he actually died Sunday, Sept. 16th. I was sitting by his side (as I had been all weekend) when he died, his two sons also spent the weekend with us in the hospital. I had trouble letting go, but the hospital kindly let me sit and continue holding his hand for three hours after his death. Thank you, again for your nice sentiments, I miss his humor and pats on my ample butt!
Donna (Mrs. Charlie Green)
